Addendum: Old Davenport Postering Policy

From here:

Display of Announcements in the Campus Center

Postering is limited to the ground floor corkboards along the east and west entrances, and to the wall between the elevator and restrooms on the ground floor. Due to this limited space, posters may also be placed on the stone railing leading up to the Food Court area landing. Any posters anywhere above this level will be removed immediately, or nightly by physical plant-

No postering is allowed on glass doors or dry walls throughout the building as this is in violation of the city fire codes. Such postering will be removed immediately, or nightly by physical plant.

Banners can hang only from the four round metal railings above the stair wells, or from the corkboard strips on the first floor landing and outside the MPR. Placement of banners is on a first come, first placed basis. Banners must be removed the day after the advertised event.

If students want to ensure that a poster or announcement will stay up and/or not be postered over, they should use the Campus Events Board (covers a two week period) on the first floor, or request a notice be placed on the Video Bulletin Board. For both of these options, students should see the Campus Center Coordinator or the night Student Manager in the first floor Campus Center Office for instructions.

I can’t imagine the new campus center won’t have corkboards, but the policy is pretty vague, especially when compared to the old one above. It’s still too early to say, so we’ll just have to see. I really hope to be pleasantly surprised.

You also can’t smoke within 25 feet of Usdan or Fayerweather, but I have a feeling that’s going to be one of those rules no one listens to.

I am (believe it or not) tired of being pessimistic about Usdan, so I will end this post with something I do like: It closes at 1AM Sunday through Thursday and 2am Friday through Saturday.

    Firm, widespread student input on this issue should be effective in loosening some of these restrictions. Davenport was ours; just walking through it gave you a sense not only of what was happening on campus, but what kind of campus this was: big, bright, colorful painted signs, silly slogans, random drawings in crayon, etc.I think it was also a good look at what Wesleyan’s like as an institution; you could always tell which prefrosh, walking through Davenport with their parents, were either going rush home to apply early, or file Wesleyan at the bottom of their list.Uzi is supposed to be a student space; let’s make sure it serves us, the students. Let the administration know that if this is going to be our new hub, we want to be able to make it our own. I’d hate to see the creative juices that made lunch everyday at Davenport so interesting suddenly dry up.And I think the ban on smoking within 25 feet of Uzi is the standard for all campus buildings, or at least dorms. But I might be wrong.
